2011-01-26 Ballet Class

Heather Shrimpton, of the Alloa Ballet Company, was kind enough to invite me to photograph her dance class this evening.

These dancers are preparing for their annual display, where they will show what they have been working on over the year.

Now, I did ballet lessons for a little while, and believe me that to do ballet well takes a huge amount of determination and damned hard work. I gave up in disgust after a little while, when I began to realise that I came away from each class feeling I knew less than I had the previous week!

Anyway, I want to say "well done" to all of these dancers, and to thank Heather for letting me photograph them.
